Samosa Egg Rolls is  my recipe  of  the day with the blogging group  From Our Dinner Table. There are weekly events  on Sundays.  This week the topic  is about finger  foods.

I  am  sharing my recipe for samosas  in an egg roll wrapper, which takes about half the work out of making these appetizers.

The result  is slightly different from the usual pie crust type  pastry you  see with samosa,  but you  won’t notice much. And without making a pastry from scratch,  besides the rolls timesaver, it makes this recipe very easy.

I  usually use bottled chutneys at home,  except  if  I  am making onion chutney,  which is best done fresh. I  can make chutneys, but there  is  no  shame in  buying  these for  convenience.

And since  this recipe is focused on  convenience and  time-saving,  it goes with the territory.
